EarthBound’s 15th Anniversary
The final batch of official MOTHER 2/EarthBound figures are finally out in Japan! This time there are three different Starman figures, a couple different Mr. Saturn ones, and a Belch figure:
Again, these aren’t actually for sale in stores – you have to win them in Japanese arcades. If you don’t live in Japan and/or suck at those claw machine games, here are some places you can get your hands on these:
- Starman and Belch figures on eBay (the only one on there available at the time of this writing is this one
- All MOTHER 2/EarthBound figures on eBay
- Starman figures on Yahoo Auctions Japan
There’s are a few more details about the figure sets here, too.
Now that all the figures have been made available, this special campaign will probably kick in. The number of prizes is limited, so those stickers will probably be collectors items for sure!
It’s being overly hopeful, but maybe these figures did well enough for Banpresto and Itoi that more stuff might get made. That’d be cool 😀
